Roberto Bolaño’s music

April 28th, 2013 1 Comment

From Violeta Parra to Lou Reed, from Bob Dylan to Jimi Hendrix and from Georges Moustaki to AC/DC. Roberto Bolaño’s musical references cover a large variety of singers and groups, according to the list of authors (musicians, but also writers, filmmakers and other artists) that he included in his notebooks, handwritten in Barcelona (1977-1980) and Girona (1980-1984). The transcription of these notebooks by the writer’s heirs has allowed us to draw up a music list that today, 28th April, will provide the soundtrack for Bolaño Day (#DiaBolaño), the day on which Bolaño would have reached his 60th birthday.

28 April, #DiaBolaño – Marking the 60th anniversary of Bolaño’s birth

April 16th, 2013 5 Comments

On Sunday 28 April writer Roberto Bolaño’s would have reached the age of 60. We want to honour his birthday with all of you, enthusiasts and avid readers of Bolaño’s work.

On Bolaño Day (#DiaBolaño), we invite you to visit the exhibition “Bolaño Archive. 1997-2003” (entry will be free of charge from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.). We are also preparing a collective reading of Bolaño’s work, featuring participation by writers, poets and people who were close to the author in his lifetime, as well as all those of you “Bolañistas” who are inspired to pay your own particular tribute.

How can you take part?

  • By choosing the poem or fragment of a story or novel by Bolaño that you like best and reading it at the space that we will be setting up for readings.
  •  By dedicating a reading of a text of your own to Roberto Bolaño, in other words, by reading one of your own literary creations.

You are welcome to come and offer your reading at the CCCB hall on 28 April from 4.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m. The CCCB will be making copies of Bolaño’s main works available. We recommend that readings do not exceed a maximum duration of 5 minutes per person.

If you are not in Barcelona or are unable to attend the event personally, you can also take part in our literary tribute via the social networks. On both the CCCB’s Twitter (with hashtag #DiaBolaño)) and Facebook accounts, you can discuss everything about the Chilean author’s work that captivates you and publish the fragments that impress you most, the enigmas that have made you think, quotes, articles, interviews, interesting references, etc. The aim is that we all come together to celebrate the literature and share the creative universe of an author who on Sunday 28 April would have reached his 60th year.
